Last night Phillip was out of town and at 3 in the morning my car was broken into. All they took was my purse (with debit cards, credit cards, gift cards etc.) and I don't know how they got in since it was locked. I was alerted to their presence by my car alarm going off but had the presence of mind to not walk out to the apartment parking lot and check on things until the police got there. I'm no hero.
The reason I am sharing my sad story is to pass along a tip. Ladies, don't leave your purses in your car! There were much nicer cars than mine to rip off but the thieves were going for whatever was in plain sight and easy to access. Happily no glass was broken and besides a little bit of mess to clean up (they dumped out my glove compartment) I was glad that I had recently removed my social security cards, checkbook and ipod from my purse and glove compartment and also glad that they got no more than $.72 in change.
The biggest reason I'm so bummed is I really liked that purse, it's a pain to replace all my cards, I lost about $50 in gift cards and I can't remember the brand name of my favorite lipstick!
I was struck today by how lucky I am to be complaining about something so small. I can imagine that people in the Middle East have much more to fear on a daily basis and lose life and limb while going about their business. I was also reminded of an article I read recently about how corrupt the police force is in Mexico and how different it is here. I am thankful for the two trustworthy police officers that showed up, and I have full confidence that they will both protect and serve the public interest as they go about their job. What a great country we live in!
Not only sands and gravels Were once more on their travels, But gulping muddy gallons Great boulders off their balance Bumped heads together...
